On October 28, 2012, Hollywood Life reported that after Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson enjoyed a date night at a Prince concert, the two were spotted going separate ways. On Saturday, October 27, 2012, Pattinson attended the LACMA Art +Film Gala without Stewart, leaving many to speculate the newly reconciled couple had encountered difficulty. It is probable that the couple are prevented from attending any official events together where they would be photographed as this would take away from the excitement of the November 12, 2012 “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” premiere. The event is slated to be the pinnacle of Twi-hard excitement and fans are anxiously awaiting the chance to see Stewart and Pattinson walk the red carpet together. As Stewart and Pattinson continue to make separate appearances, People magazine quoted a source as saying Pattinson continues to have difficulty trusting Stewart following her summer fling with Rupert Sanders.
Robert Pattinson Still Feels Repercussions from Kristen Stewart’s Summer Fling
Reports indicate that though Pattinson has forgiven Stewart and has taken her back, he continues to struggle with trust issues. As the couple were recently in separate parts of the country (Robert Pattinson promoted the “Twilight” films in Australia, while Kristen Stewart was in Japan), the separation may help Pattinson with his trust issues. Stewart engaged in a fling with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders that resulted in a swift end to the couple’s four-year relationship.
Flings are different from long-term romances, or affairs where both parties make an emotional connection and plan to commit to one another. Flings occur more than one-night-stands, however; both are sexual affairs that involve no emotional connection or commitment. They may be a matter of convenience and often arise because someone is seeking more excitement or feels as though they were carried away by the moment.
Of all the types of affairs people may be involved in, flings and one-night-stands are the least serious in the sense that there is not an emotional connection that needs to be addressed. Neither Rupert Sanders nor Kristen Stewart have given any indication they were interested in having a committed relationship. For Pattinson, this may be viewed as reassuring as he doesn’t need to worry that Stewart and Sanders are secretly rendezvousing behind his back as they have an emotional connection that won’t quit.
While Pattinson may continue to struggle with trusting Stewart, he can rest in knowing that a fling truly is a momentary indiscretion acted upon for a variety of reasons and often carries an immediate sense of regret and guilt. Stewart has expressed these emotions towards Pattinson and this undoubtedly has helped Pattinson decide to give their relationship another try.
Rebuilding Trust after an Affair/Fling
Though Stewart and Pattinson have been photographed together and things seem great between the two, this is a very delicate time in the couple’s relationship. Stewart’s main role now is to rebuild trust with Pattinson following her fling with Sanders. While it is good that Stewart and Sanders did not have a long, drawn out affair, the impact of the betrayal is just as painful for Pattinson. Stewart must ensure she keeps this in her consideration and takes positive steps to rebuild trust in the relationship.
Stewart has taken many positive steps already. She has acknowledged the fling, apologized, broken communication with Sanders, reestablished her connection with Pattinson, apparently restored intimacy (according to new photos taken at Stewart’s Los Feliz home), and has worked on communication. The only thing left to ensure the couple’s relationship becomes affair-proof is to reestablish trust.
Stewart and Pattinson are headed down the right path, and it may just be that Pattinson needs time. It takes time to build trust and as long as Stewart truly is committed to being in a monogamous relationship with Pattinson, understands why she had a fling with Sanders and keeps open communication with Pattinson, there is no reason to suspect the two won’t enjoy a stronger relationship than they had previously.
